Bronze wildlife sculptor Sally Amoore grew up in Kenya where she developed a deep passion for the natural world. She began her career using pastels before switching to clay and bronze, which she felt gave more range and depth to her work, allowing her to express the essence of her subjects with greater verisimilitude. Sally sculpts from life whenever possible. She frequently returns to Africa and has undertaken expeditions in Central Asia and the Himalayas to observe animals in their natural habitat.

Sally’s younger son was severely wounded when he stepped on a homemade bomb in the Afghan province of Helmand while serving in the British army. Her bronze military sculptures are born out of this.

Sally lives on a small farm in south Wales, surrounded by sheep and close to the foundry that casts her wildlife sculptures in bronze. She is the resident artist at The Waterfront Gallery in Pembrokeshire and has received numerous awards for her work.
